HP Announces Ultra-Thin LCD + Low Cost Data Plans
Hewlett-Packard is releasing an ultra-thin display. If you thought Apple was the leader in this market, think again! The 21.5″ Elite L2201x has a power supply that is located outside the device, allowing for the screen to be as thin as 0.4 inches thick. The display offers a beautiful metal finish to its stand with glossy black borders around the screen itself. It only has one port which is a DisplayPort but we are hoping this will be enough for the majority of users.
The LCD panel offers a 5,000:1 contrast ratio and 250 nits of brightness with 1080p support. This isn’t the highest resolution screen but still delivers a punch. This device can be yours for the low price of only $249. The gorgeous display ships out on June 1st and is sure to impress your Mac friends.
HP is also introducing new data plans along with DataPass + Sprint’s 3G offer. Users will be able to pay $5 for 75MB of data over five hours, or $10 for 150MB that lasts for three days. Users who are looking to stay connected for two weeks will spend $20 for 450MB and $30 supplies 1GB of data access for a full month. The service is currently limited to HP notebooks, but offers excellent flexibility for spontaneous travelers.
